Forum: etree Subject: Re: Grateful Dead: Those Jerry Moments

The Morning Dew from 10-12-84 Augusta, Maine is a perfect example of Jerry hitting an emotional vocal high--actually several. But when he sings "...thought I heard a young man moan today" for the second time in that particular verse the crowd just swells up with him; it's a rare example of the middle part of that tune being as powerful as the "big moment" Guess it doesn't matter anywaaaaaaay ending.

Also: His guitar solos on EYES from 10-29-77: 1) The beautiful, jazzy, groovy intro he takes his time with before the first lyric is even uttered and especially the ridiculous crescendos he reaches back for and finds in the jam before the final "Sometime we live no particular way but our own" verse.

If it doesn't give you chills, check your pulse to make sure you're still alive!
p.s. I miss him, too.
